Tao of the Day  
Regarding caution when crossing a stream in winter: the more nervous you are, the more likely you are to slip and fall.

Regarding courtesy as a guest: the longer you stay, the more you become indebted to your host.

Regarding melting ice: the more you do to prevent it from melting, the quicker it melts.

Regarding making furniture: the more you carve the wood, the weaker it gets.

Let each thing act according to its own nature, and it will eventually come to rest in its own way.

- Lao Tzu (15: Bahm).
